Pilou Asbæk's quotes

  • When you watch the films that I'm inspired by - from the '60s and '70s - it's not about the special effects: it's about the story; it's about characters and relationships.
  • If it was up to me, we would eliminate close-ups and beautiful light and sound - because we want to go back to basics.
  • The most exciting thing about joining 'Game Of Thrones' is joining 'Game Of Thrones.'
  • I think if you just made a film that says, 'This is anti-war,' and you had to spend two hours explaining that... you don't like war? Wow, that's original. Know what I mean?
  • I used to read reviews - I read a lot of the reviews when I did 'Borgen,' but the thing is, people were so harsh that I talked to my wife about it, and I said this is too tough - the people are too personal and too idiotic to understand it, in my mind.
  • Overnight, I became a public figure.
  • I'm not a religious guy at all.
  • Guess what? Human beings are complex.
  • I watched 'Eurovision.' And I actually like the show. I like wind machines. I like the whole glimmer-glamour thing. That's 'Eurovision.' We love to hate it.
  • I think a role model is a person who says, 'This is who I am.'
  • I'm a father first.
  • In 'A Hijacking,' the characters are low-status people.
  • I did half a year of theatre.
  • I never read anything that's written about me.
  • I'm an actor. 99.9% of all actors in the world have been in denial towards the military.
  • I have no ambitions at all! I have none... seriously. I want to be a good father. I want to be a good husband. I want to be a good son, a good brother, a good family member. I don't have any ambition to direct a film or write a play. I like acting.
  • 'Eurovision' is a party. I've never said no to a party, so I'm not saying no to this.
  • As an actor, you want roles that are full of meat.
  • I want to keep pushing those boundaries of acting.
  • It was great fun being part of a TV series that I'd been a fan of for five years. I've been watching it every single Monday when with my wife. It was like a ritual - every Monday night on HBO Nordic, we would watch 'Game of Thrones' together.
  • I don't know - the whole leading man, I don't buy it.
  • I'm not a natural leader. If you see me in a room, I'm the guy standing in a corner hiding. I'm not an alpha male.
  • I think all interesting characters have some kind of a complex.
  • Films come and go. Families stay.
  • I love people who go out and say, 'If cinema is God, then I'm the pope.' As an actor working with these kinds of people, the older you get, the more you appreciate it.
  • Trump starts out by saying, 'We need to build walls; we need to do this.' He's very bombastic in what he's saying and his approach to the world.
  • In my mind, I still think - and wish - that I'm going to be a journalist or a writer. That's been my dream job my entire life.
  • As a private person, I am maybe more 'Eurovision' than Kasper Juul.
  • That guy in 'The Simpsons' - I love Groundskeeper Willie.
  • With 'A Hijacking' I didn't talk to anyone who had been hijacked, but with 'A War,' I talked to as many soldiers as possible trying to understand how is it in Afghanistan.
  • The leading character isn't always the most important or interesting character; when people think that the protagonist is the character portrayed, it's people who haven't read Shakespeare.
  • I'm not cynical. I cry at 'ET.' And 'Kung Fu Panda!'
  • I started quite late. I didn't know acting was a job.
  • Honestly, I think it's kind of corny to sit and watch your own work.
  • I was the first person in the family to be an actor.
  • I did some theatre straight out of school, and it wasn't anything spectacular at all.
  • I'm the worst liar alive.
  • I want to direct in Denmark. I married a writer; my best friend's a writer, so I always wanted to be a writer.
  • It's always difficult when you're working with Mother Nature, because you need to adapt to that.
  • I'm trying to have a family and a career.
  • I love my kid. I love a boring life.
  • I have the deepest, deepest respect for these guys who are actually fighting for democracy in countries far away.
  • On 'Ghost In The Shell,' I'm looking forward more to working with Scarlett Johannson and Rupert Sanders than portraying a lead!
  • I do enjoy the Scottish way of playing football.
  • For me, it's very important that the people I'm working with are feeling happy.
  • I'm not in a position where I can pick and choose. It's the other way around. The studios pick and choose.
  • Whenever you do a film, it's always like a little miracle. So many people getting together trying to do something so that the audience can be entertained.
  • The American president isn't just the American president. He's going to be the leader of the whole Western world, you know? You got a pretty big responsibility.
  • I was so irritated that people in Denmark considered me to be this serious guy who only did dramatic roles.
  • I think six seasons are telling us one thing about 'Game of Thrones': Everyone should watch their back. No one is safe. That's what I love about the show. I love that it's so unpredictable.
  • I love 'Sex and the City,' but it's also wonderful that there's something else other than 'Sex and the City.'
  • I like to do my own stunts, but sometimes you need a little bit of help.
  • Life is not black and white; there is some gray nuance to it.
